budget, is not actually the holiest thing you can pursue in government. >> paul ryan today put forward his budget. >> right. >> and says he is challenging you to come forward with a budget that reaches balance. are you going to do that? >> no. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue, if we controlled spending and have a smart entitlement package, then potentially what you have is balance, but it is not balance on the backs of, you know, the poor, the elderly, students who need student loans, families who have disabled kids, that's not the right way to balance our budget. >> the glow is off paul ryan budgets, even for republicans, including former ryan worshipper rush limbaugh. >> now, there are people that don't like it, even on the republican side because it has tax increases in it, some say tax increases on the rich. leaves some of obama's tax increases in it. heritage foundation has done deep analysis of this. one of their prob

ought to be fired immediately. a sick joke that nobody ought to take seriously. paul ryan's budget is the same he put forth the last two years in a row. hasn't he learned anything? he would destroy medicare and medicaid, give the wealthy yet another tax break, put most of the burden on the poor and middle class and repeal obama care. this budget is going nowhere. it will be dead on arrival in the senate. it is pure fiscal mastur va tion. yet paul ryan gets credit for being a serious thinker. i will tell you this if paul ryan is a serious thinker i am an astronaut. take a look at the budget. doesn't add up. tomorrow, congressman keith ellison and peter welch, oh, boy. can't wait for that. come back and join us right here tomorrow. >> this is "the bill press show."

. how does it tack up to the budget proposed yet by paul ryan? here is a side-by-side comparison. the savings are more than double those in murray's plan. how has the numbers wizard able to find so much more extra fat to trim from the federal budget? he is cutting to the bone. more than $700 billion would be caved out of medicaid and nearly a try won would be chopped from programs including food stamps and pell grants. the defense would see zero in cuts in an enter view that aired this morning -- >> we're not going to balance the budget in ten years, because if you look at what paul ryan does to balance the budget, it means that you have to voucherize medicare, you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. >> but even those cuts alone don't make paul ryan's numbers add up. it only achieves balance through a full repeat of obama care, which it's worth noting is already law of the land upheld by supreme court and being enacted in 27 states. this gimmickry represents a stunning the extra $700 billion in savings from repealing a law. the editorial board of "the washington pos

. meanwhile, chairman paul ryan unveiled his budget plan and listen to how ryan describes republican priorities. >> the most important question isn't how we balance the budget, but why. a budget is a means to an end. an end is the well being of the american people. >> the most important question is how we balance the budget and making sure it's not on the backs of working americans. congressman ryan also made an unfortunate slip. >> this to us is something we're not going to give up on because we're not going to give up on destroying the health care system for american people. >> an instant classic. you believe him? chairman ryan's plan to repeal obama care has already been pan ed by one fox news host. another took aim at ryan's budget today. >> paul ryan saying his idea in his budget is to eliminate obama care, that's not practical. even though you might want it, the supreme court has spoken. that's never going to fly. >> i raised the same point yesterday. you're exactly right. how would he factor this in? >> maybe paul ryan doesn't understand the process. who knows. meanwhile, the

to "hannity," the chance for reeconomic prosperity has been unveiled. paul ryan will be joining me momentarily to detail his bold and controversial budget plan. let's look at what he's proposing and why the democrats and president need to listen and act. according to the fiscal blueprint, the budget will be balanced in ten years and will not raise taxes. how does he accomplish this? he doesn't spend what we don't have. here is how the congressman explained it earlier today. >> this budget cuts spending by 4.6 trillion dollars offer the next ten years. historically we've paid a little less than 1/5 of our income to the federal government, but the government has spent a lot more. we match revenues with expenditures, so the budget matches the spending with income just like every family and business must do throughout america. >> sean: to help us reach this balanced budget in ten years, congressman ryan lays out four major issue we as a country must tackle. first, energy. ryan's plan paves a path for affordable and american produced energy, most notably, the plan green lights the keystone pipeline

's not at the top of my list. and he's more interested -- i mean, he thinks that the paul ryan budget really hurts education and research. and he thinks if the government doesn't invest in education and research, then we will not be internationally competitive. the republicans have a completely different view. it's great that they're talking. i think it's wonderful that they're talking but they are at opposite ends philosophically about this. >>brian: the house says okay, there is the budget. you don't like it? the senate is going to do something interesting. they are going to have a budget. excited about it? a senate republican, snorkelly ayotte on -- senator kelly ayotte on greta van susteren's show last night. >> i'm glad the democrats are finally after four years going to do a budget in the senate but basically he's rendering himself irrelevant because his is going to come after the house puts forth his budget, after the senate does his budget. where is he on this issue? you'd think he would have a fiscal blueprint for the country. i'm on the budget committee and we'll be doing it without his
of a llck of seriousness, but it is beyond party. lou: house budget committee chairman paul ryan wrote of "wall street journal" op-ed today, laying out the republican 2014 budget plan. the right approacslices more than four and a half trillion dollars in spending and balance the budget within a decade and cuts tax rates while doing so. and it eliminates obamacare saving almost $2 trillion. that is not unlikely event. about as unlikely, in fact, as the democrats $1 trillion in new taxes. republicans and democrats obviously still as far apart as ever on the issues of spending and taxes. the president's budget proposal is still a mystery among but as press secretary today giving as something of an idea of just when that well overdue budget might finally be delivered by the white house. right now the president is focusing on meeting with democrats and repubcans on capitol hill. he has a lot to sell. fox news chief white house correspondent ed henry with our report. >> reporter: on the day republicans put their budget on the table, president obama arrived on capitol hill for the start of th

why they are treating paul ryan like he is a big pain in the ass, he is not, maybe the asses judging help are, but he is not, talk about a party punch in the one corner, paul ryan with a plan to get a budget in balance through largely spending cuts and largely no tax hikes, in other corner democratic senator patty murray. a case of us likely losing, because the cuts really are not there we have rick yo joining m -- a little boxing reference, you have to know that. all right, so, what do you think elizabeth? leaving aside in controversial things that paul ryan wants to do. in the en, just trimming the increase, that is it? >> yeah, i think one of the big thing here's that people lose sight of is balancing the budget, patty murray supposed budget does not even balance, it is supposed to raise a trillion in revenue, that tells you, this is more of a shopping spree than a budget, people need to remember that a budget hopefully means you are only spending as much as you take in, not more. neil: scott martin, the markets seem to sense, maybe that despite all of the just erring -- gesturing
news is saying that paul ryan said the president did himself a lot of good. but he is the guy who beat paul ryan. go ahead. >> i just -- i have to say -- and i have to use -- you know, what my -- my grandmother used to say, is who is paul ryan when he is at home? he is a discredited economic char lotton and a failed vice presidential candidate and a guy who couldn't even carry his own town in the election. >> michael: so let's look at the other side is there a chance that this offensive works for the president? >> i don't think so unless it works for him in a way that winds up with his own base lighting his hair on fire. if you are on the progressive side of the budget proposed by bernie sanders and that coalition, your best chance right now is the tea party. the tea party will blow up whatever deal comes out from the right, and the president will be forced to retrench himself on ground of your chooses. >> michael: yeah that really is the land of last resort. let's go back to ryan then. because you were just talking about the budget. you wrote that ryan's budget is
] >> budget committee chairman paul ryan lays out the 2014 budget plan. then senate leaders harry reid and mitch mcconnell talk with reporters about their parties budget proposals. on the next "washington journal ," we talk with republican representative bill cassity, a member of the energy and progress committee about the health care law and jobs. representative when more is a member of the house budget committee. she will discuss the budget proposed by both parties. the national review senior editor will be here to look at what's america's republicans. "washington journal" is live on c-span everyday at 7:00 a.m. eastern. >> when it comes to the secretary of state and the people around her, what i found striking is her ability to stay focused. at all times as much as possible on what is happening. she does not get distracted by the details if they are not important. she has an ability to stay focused on the big picture. how is what is happening in afghanistan impacting what they are doing in the middle east? how was that impacting what they are trying to do in asia? she had a sense of
job creation, the budget plans to do more of the same. the interesting thing is paul ryan of course kicked off the budget process for a year. knowing that is the president's job but once again president obama has not come to the table with a budget. gerri: is there a deficit of leadership here? >> i lived in washington for 30 years and i don't think i've ever saidresident not propose a budget by this time of year. we don't know when that budget is coming out. gerri: it keeps getting delayed, right? >> he was president for four years. look, this is a balanced approach to raise taxes. a lot of people are not aware of this, we've already had two big tax increases. obamacare has another half trillion dollars. gerri: we ha the tax on people earning 40,000 end up, the tax on payroll tax increase coming into effect, taxes, taxes, texas. you have been looking at some of the numbers r the president, doesn't look so good for him right now. >> that is pretty evidently why. we have seen disapproval up, people generally side with republicans on how much spending there ought to be, they will make
the president obama as he responds to congressman paul ryan's plan to balance the budget in ten years. we still have not seen the president's budget. that was due last month. we remember that an extension was requested but he tells abc news that the congressman, congressman ryan, and he, have very different goals when it comes to the economy. listen to this. >> my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue. martha: stuart varney, host of "varney & company" on the fox business network. what do you think about that statement? he says you shouldn't just chase a balanced budget just for the sake of being able to say it is balanced? >> i think the president was spelling out his priority and his priority is not balancing the budget for the sake of balancing the budget. his priority is growth by spending more government money. that i think is his priority. and as you said, martha, that is in sharp contrast to paul ryan who is deliberately going after d
we reported on congressman paul ryan's gop budget proposal which takes aim at spending. he spent sen months putting u.s. hospital bills under the microscope to find out why health care american style costs so much. his findings are in the march 4th issue of "time" magazine. howard dean is a physician who during his six terms in office kept costs in check. gentlemen, welcome. i look forward to this conversation. >> thank you. >> you spent 21,000 words, longest article in "time's" history. it was an amazing piece with some amazing reporting in it, but i'll ask you to boil those 21,000 words down to about 20 and tell me why you think principally health care costs as much as it does. >> i think i can blow it down to four words. the price is too high and the reason the price is too high is there isn't a free marketplace. the typical health care consumer whether it's the person who is uninsured or even the largest of the insurance companies doesn't have the leverage in the marketplace. we live in a world where we think this is a free market. we like everything to be a free market in this c
. but to president obama, balancing the budget alone not his top priority. >> paul ryan is challenging you to come forward with a budget that also reaches balance. are you going to do that? >> no, my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work, and if we do that, we're going to be bringing in more revenue, if we've controlled spending and we've got a smart entitlement package, then potentially what you have is balance but it's not balance on the backs of, you know, the poor, the elderly, students who need student loans, family who have got disabled kids. that's not the right way to balance our budget. >> a major part of congressman ryan's plan relies on repealing the president's landmark health care law, a tactic house republicans have tried dozens of times before without gaining any traction. >> in terms of your budget, if you don't get it this year and the likelihood of getting it repealed this year is very, very low, does it blow a hole in your ten-year budget. >> sure because it calls for continuing the spe
chairman paul ryan offered his blueprint for federal spending today, but a white house spokesman dismissed it, saying the math doesn't add up. good evening. i'm judy woodruff. >> brown: and i'm jeffrey brown. on the newshour tonight, we get the latest on the republican proposal, as president obama begins a series of meetings with members of congress to restart a bipartisan dialogue. >> woodruff: then we turn to the conversation sparked by facebook executive sheryl sandberg in her new book about women juggling careers, family, and leadership roles. >> brown: spencer michels reports on a gold mine of information stored in a gene data bank that could help revolutionize medicine. >> a large group of people about whom we know everything about their medical history. we can look across diseases and see, are there common elements in these diseases? >> woodruff: and on the daily download, we look at the gap between what twitter followers think, and what polls reveal. >> like talk radio we shouldn't fall into the trap of thinking it's like a public announcement. it's certainly what people are chatte
